The use of cookies and web beacons


Own cookies and web beacons, advertising by third parties, links to other websites In order to design our Internet offer in the most user-friendly manner for you, we, as well as many other companies, also use so-called permanent or temporary cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small text files which are stored on the user's computer and allow for an analysis of how he or she uses the website. This storage, for example, serves to enable an auto-login so that you do not have to identify yourself each time you access the site. No personal identification of the user takes place based on the data stored in the cookie.

If you do not want cookies to be stored on your computer or wish to be informed of their storage, you can not prevent the installation of cookies by a corresponding adjustment to your browser software by selecting the option "do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. The games will stop working correctly. Your browser manufacturer's instructions will give you more details on how this works. However, we would like to point out that by preventing cookies, you can not play the game at-all.


Advertising by third parties, links to other websites, Google AdSense, Facebook button


From time to time, the website may also contain advertising by a third party and interactive links to third party Internet appearances for which Harm Frielink is not responsible. In particular, Harm Frielink has no influence on the content and design of the linked external pages or the Internet appearances which you reach via these pages. The relevant providers are exclusively responsible for the content and design of these Internet appearances as well as their compliance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act.


The website uses Google AdSense, a web services provided by Google, through which third party advertisements are posted on the website. Within these advertisements, Google can post cookies on the user's hard drive in order to read out the data and can use web beacons (small, invisible graphic files) to collect information. Information created by the cookies and/or web beacons are transferred to a Google server in the USA and processed there.


Occasionally, the advertisers or companies use technologies through which advertisements appearing on the Harm Frielink page are sent directly to your browser, resulting in an automatic transfer of your IP address. The relevant advertisers or companies at times also use cookies as well as other technical means to measure their advertisements' efficiency or to improve their content. This particularly, but not exclusively, affects the allocation of Internet pages to certain interest categories according to your Internet use. In this context, no connection is created between this information and your name, address, telephone number or email address. Harm Frielink has no influence on this. Data handling by these third parties is therefore not included in this data protection declaration.


The website can include the so-called Facebook button "Like", which is exclusively operated by the social network Facebook and thus by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook“). Should you click on the Facebook button "Like" you will be asked by Facebook, if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged into your Facebook account, to register with Facebook in order to use the function. The consequence is that your information is transferred to Facebook. However, should you already have a Facebook account and are logged into your Facebook account parallel to your visit to the website, a connection is automatically created to Facebook's servers, in other words, even without you clicking on the Facebook button; this means that data is transferred to Facebook immediately following your visit to the website. The transfer of your data and the allocation to your Facebook account therefore takes place automatically without any further notification. Harm Frielink has no influence on this. You can only prevent this transfer if you log out of your Facebook account beforehand. Harm Frielink expressly points out that you can obtain further information about the data which Facebook collects and your individual rights in this regard from Facebook's website and the data protection provisions stated there. You can read Facebook's data protection provisions on page

California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, (“Facebook”) and/or Twitter International Company, The Academy 42, Pearse Street, Dublin 2, Ireland, (“Twitter”).
